Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is one of my favorite things to make with the lemons from our tree.  I have searched high and low for the best recipe and this is one I made up from a combination of recipes I tried.  

3 lemons
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 stick butter
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/8 tsp kosher salt

Zest the lemons and mix with the sugar in a large bowl.  Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and lemon mixture. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the lemon juice and salt. Mix until combined. Pour the mixture into a saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened (about 15 minutes), stirring constantly. The lemon curd will thicken just below simmer. Remove from the heat and cool or refrigerate.
